WHY ARE USED CARS SO EXPENSIVE IN THAILAND?

New cars in Thailand have a high tax, so they are more expensive than in much of the west. Luxury cars even more. Here is what I believe: the high tax on cars in Thailand is similar to the C.O.E on cars in Singapore, Certificate of Entitlement, which is basically a tax on car ownership. Singapore's ...

Driving Manners, what do you do?

Kids football school.

Hope nobody minds my mentioning it, the smallest kid in the photo is mostly on the sidelines and the majority are bigger and quite active and they have a good 2-5 hours of training and learning.

Nok Restaurant - in Nongsamrong Area (Sponsor)

Last night, Sunday, was surprised Nok's was closed so I called Alfie, who asked I post this message. He is unable to type himself for the moment. Unfortunately Alfie had a motorcycle accident and broke his collar bone, so Nok's may have occasional need to close when normally they would be open. If i...
